How to Use this Catalog 

THIS CATALOG IS EASY TO USE 

Just take a minute to flip through it. You'll see right 
away that it isn't too hard to find what you're looking 
for. When in doubt, use the table of contents in the front 
or the index in the back. 

IT HAS FIVE SECTIONS 

General Information and College Services - This 
section has basic information about the College and its 
campuses. It includes College history, campus addresses, 
and other important information such as financial aid, 
student rights, grading systems, and so on. Get to know 
this section well. 

Degree Programs and Requirements - Use this sec- 
tion to find out which classes to take to earn the degree 
or certificate you want. It's organized by "program" (such 
as business administration or manufacturing and indus- 
trial technology), and then by "concentration" (such as 
marketing or welding). You also use this section to fi nd 
out what degrees are offered in a certain fi eld and how 
many course credits you need to complete them. It also 
tells how many credits you'll earn for each course. 

Course Descriptions - After you look up the classes 
you need in section 2, you'll probably want to know 
what they're all about. Go to this easy-to-use section for 
that. Simply fi nd the course number (see sample page 
at right) in the Program Descriptions section ( Section 2) 
and then look it up in the Course Descriptions section 
(section 3). Everything in section 3 is in alphabetical 
order. 

Program Availability - Ivy Tech offers many educa- 
tional programs and degrees, but not all programs and 
degrees are offered at all 23 campuses.This section is 
designed to help you quickly fi nd which programs are 
available at the Ivy Tech campus that interests you. 

Faculty List and Accreditations - This section is sim- 
ply a list of full-time faculty and their educational back- 



grounds. It also shows which organizations and agencies 
accredit Ivy Tech Community College, its campuses, and 
programs. 

WATCH FOR SYMBOLS AND TERMS. 

A degree or certificate program requires different types 
of courses.There are four terms that describe course 
types:"General Education, ""Professional/Technical," 
"Concentration," and "Locally Determined." Most 
degrees or certificates require some courses of each 
type. Other terms you'll see are: 

Elective- The term "elective" means you can choose 
the class you want from those offered on your campus. 
These are marked with a "*". 
Capstone Course- This type of course includes a 
component that assesses certain skills that will be 
expected of you as a graduate in the workforce. The 
assessment typically involves a written assignment. 
These are marked with a" A ? 
Locally Determined - This means your campus 
decides which classes you must take to complete the 
degree. In cases where you see courses marked with 
the symbol "**" it means that one of two courses is 
required and your campus decides which. In other 
cases, your campus determines which courses are 
required to fulfi II the degree, based primarily on 
needs of local business and industry. 

Your academic advisor can tell you which classes are 
required.

COLLEGE PROFILE 

In just over 40 years, Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana — more popularly known as Ivy 
Tech — has grown from a mere idea to a thriving post-secondary institution. 

In 1963, the Indiana General Assembly established Indiana Vocational Technical College as 
Indiana's first statewide vocational technical college and appropriated $50,000 for its develop- 
ment. Following the appointment of a state board of trustees, a president was named and the 
first training program was established in 1965. The General Assembly later authorized Ivy Tech's 
present structure of 14 regions to provide accessible technical educational opportunities to all 
Indiana citizens. Between 1966 and 1969, 13 of the 14 regions were chartered and their boards of 
trustees appointed. (Region 14 was approved in 2000.) Later, Ivy Tech was given authority to 
grant diplomas and certificates, including one-year technical certificates and two-year associate 
degrees, and to offer general education courses needed for its technical education programs. Ivy 
Tech's growth in its relatively short history has been impressive. Enrollment reached 1 02,000 in 
2003-04. The College had only 3,233 students in the fall of 1968. Within the statewide Ivy Tech 
system, more than 4,200 full- and part-time faculty members teach in program areas offered in 
eight schools: Business, Liberal Arts and Sciences, Education, Applied Science and Engineering 
Technology, Public and Social Services, Health Sciences, Fine Arts and Design, and Technology. 

The State Board of Trustees appointed Gerald I. Lamkin as the sixth president of Indiana 
Vocational Technical College in December 1982. In 1995, the Indiana General Assembly changed 
the name of the College to Ivy Tech Community College. In May 2005, the Governor of Indiana 
signed a bill making Ivy Tech Indiana's community college system. Ivy Tech is now providing stu- 
dents with more opportunities by expanding transferable technical and professional offerings 
and liberal arts programs. In keeping with the College's expanded mission, on July 1,2005, Ivy 
Tech's official name changed to Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana. 

COLLEGE MISSION 

As a statewide, open-access, community college, Ivy Tech Community College provides residents 
of Indiana with professional, technical, transfer, and lifelong education for successful careers, per- 
sonal development, and citizenship. Through its affordable, quality educational programs and 
services, the College strengthens Indiana's economy and enhances its cultural development. 

COLLEGE GOALS 

Ivy Tech Community College strives to accomplish its mission placing strategic emphasis on: 
Professional and technical education to prepare students with the knowledge, comprehension, 
and skills to achieve their goals, meet the needs of Indiana's employers, and be contributing 
members of the Indiana economy. 

General education to develop students' understanding and appreciation of our society, of social, 
political, civic, and environmental responsibilities. These provide students with awareness and 
understanding of knowledge and facts, and abilities to make sound, ethical judgments, to pursue 
critical and reflective thinking, and to engage in creative applications. 

Transfer education to enable students to acquire knowledge and skills in general, technical, and 
professional areas and apply them to a baccalaureate degree at a four-year institution. 

Developmental education to prepare students with knowledge, skills, and competencies in lan- 



guage arts, mathematics, computing, and college life skills. Courses are designed to enable stu- 
dents to be successful in their postsecondary education studies as well as to function productive- 
ly in society. 

Student development and services for recreational, social, wellness, and personal interest activi- 
ties, involvement in community activities, and leadership activities.These also include career and 
academic counseling, advising, job placement, transfer services, tutoring, and accommodating 
students with unique needs. 

Continuing education for licensing renewal, re-certification requirements, and other employ- 
ment-related interests or requirements. These opportunities may include courses for the General 
Equivalency Diploma, and courses, workshops, and seminars for personal interest, self-improve- 
ment, and enjoyment. 

Workforce education and training in credit, noncredit, and contract credit courses, certifications, 
custom designed courses, and consultative and evaluative services offered to businesses and 
industries to enable the State's employers to be effective, productive, and competitive globally. 

Community service that connects the resources of the College to the cultural, recreational, and 
civic aspects of our communities by making College resources available through volunteerism 
and community involvement. 

Diversity that reflects the communities we serve and their diverse needs. Diversity is sought in 
the student body, faculty, staff, and services, and in providing accessible, inclusive, and caring 
learning environments. 

Continuous improvement of all instruction and services offered to students, employers, and the 
community, including increasing compensation and numbers of full-time faculty, parttime facul- 
ty, and student support staff. Continuous improvement also encompasses seeking program 
accreditations, increasing graduation rates, upgrading libraries and instructional equipment, 
increasing use of technology in instructional and administrative activities, improving the condi- 
tion and amount of space, and acquiring new types of space for student activities, continuing 
education, and community services.

Entering the College 



ADMISSIONS FOR NON-DEGREE ENROLLMENT 

Ivy Tech offers courses in many areas. Admission as a non-degree student can be achieved simply by 
filing a completed registration form in the Office of Student Affairs or online at www.ivytech.edu. 
High school students (age sixteen or greater) may take Ivy Tech courses with the written approval 
of the appropriate high school official. Non-degree students enrolling in general education cours- 
es or in courses with English or mathematics pre-requisites must take the ASSET or COMPASS 
course placement assessment. Non-degree students taking other courses may also be required to 
take the assessment. Non-degree students are not eligible to receive federal or state financial aid. 

ADMISSIONS FOR DEGREE ENROLLMENT 

Ivy Tech is an open admissions college, accessible to all Indiana citizens past high school age. 
Some degree-granting programs have limited availability and have additional requirements prior 
to acceptance to those programs. 

For admission as a student to one of Ivy Tech's programs leading to an associate degree or techni- 
cal certificate, the standard requirements are a high school diploma or General Education 
Development (GED) certificate and an application for admission. Prospective students who are 
college graduates with an associate degree or higher from a regionally accredited institution may 
submit their college transcripts in lieu of the high school diploma. Prospective students who have 
some college credit may submit their college transcript if the college transcript shows the high 
school graduation date. The Office of Student Affairs will assist the student on request in obtain- 
ing a high school or college transcript or GEO scores. Transcripts brought in need to be sealed 
from the high school or other postsecondary. 

Course Placement Assessment 

All degree-seeking students must participate in the ASSET/COMPASS assessment. The purpose of 
these assessments is to measure the student's achievement in mathematics, reading, and writing, 
and to assist the student in the selection of appropriate courses. If the assessments reveal skill 
deficiencies, the student will be advised to complete appropriate developmental courses. Students 
may be eligible for financial aid during this period. When an assessment indicates that a student 
would be better served in an alternative educational setting, that individual may be referred to an 
appropriate community resource offering the needed assistance.The applicant may re-enter the 
admissions process at a later date, following completion of skills upgrading. Granting substitution 
of the ASSET/COMPASS assessment is the responsibility of the academic officer or designee. 
Substitutions will be granted to students who meet one or more of the following conditions: 

• Possess an associate degree or higher from a regionally accredited college with math skills at 
the MAT 050 level or higher and writing skills at the ENG 025 level or higher. The number of 
years since an associate or higher degree was earned is not relevant. 

• Have completed comparable academic skills advancement or general education courses in 
writing or math with a grade of "C" or better from a regionally accredited college within the 
last ten years. For purpose of substituting the reading portion, the prospective student must 
have completed a basic skills reading course or college-level general education course. 

• Have comparable assessment scores (earned within the last two years) from a regionally 



accredited institution that are deemed acceptable by an Ivy Tech campus for appropriate 
course placement. 

• Have SAT/ACT scores earned within the last four years that are deemed acceptable by Ivy 
Tech for appropriate course placement into college-level courses. The College reserves the 
right to guide the enrollment of students in particular programs or courses on the basis of 
past academic records, academic counseling and assessment. Students seeking admission to 
certain health occupation programs may be requested to take part in specific pre-enrollment 
assessments and/or interviews to fulfill college or external agency requirements. 
Prerequisites may be required before enrolling in certain programs. 

READMISSION FOLLOWING ENROLLMENT ABSENCE 

Should a course of study at the College be interrupted more than two years, students must 
request readmission by contacting the Admissions Office. Information on eligibility for financial 
aid will be available to returning students. 

LIMITED ADMISSIONS ENROLLMENT 

Occasionally, the number of students admitted and enrolled in programs and/or courses may be 
limited by College resources or facilities — including available lab equipment and related sup- 
port, or the number of available clinical work stations. The Office of Student Affairs should be 
contacted regarding programs which have limited access. 

ADMISSION PROCEDURES AND SUPPORT DOCUMENTS— DEGREE OBJECTIVE 

All prospective students pursuing an Associate of Arts, Associate of Fine Arts, Associate of Science, 

Associate of Applied Science, a Technical Certificate or a Certificate are required to: 

1. submit an Application for Admission 

2. provide one of the following: 

A. For high school graduates: 

(1 ) if they are high school graduates from public schools, home schools, private schools or 
high school correspondence schools, provide an official high school transcript consisting of 
courses and grades received, graduation date, and official signature and/or seal. If the 
prospective student cannot provide an official transcript because the high school no longer 
exists and/or records are no longer available, the prospective student must provide written 
documentation to that effect. An Indiana certificate of completion is not the same as a high 
school diploma. If students have a certificate of completion, they are considered non high 
school graduates for purposes of admission requirements, or 

(2) if they possess an associate degree or higher, they may provide an official college 
transcript from a regionally accredited college indicating date of college graduation, or 

(3) if they are less than associate degree college graduates or college transfers, they may 
provide an official college transcript from a regionally accredited college indicating the high 
school from which the student graduated (transcripts from non-accredited colleges are 
unacceptable). 

B. For non high school graduates: 

(1 ) they may submit on official GED report of passing test scores from the American Council 



on Education (ACE) or from a recognized state education body. If the prospective student 
cannot provide an official score report because records are no longer available, the prospective 
student must provide written documentation to that effect. High school equivalency exams 
provided by other organizations are not acceptable, or 

(2) they may demonstrate the Ability to Benefit from postsecondary education by obtaining 
a passing grade on a test recognized for this purpose by the U.S. Department of Education. 
Students admitted to Ivy Tech under Ability to Benefit guidelines must provide an official 
GED report of passing test scores or a high school diploma within one calendar year of their 
initial date of declaration as a degree-seeking student. Students admitted under this provision 
who do not meet these requirements will be switched to courses-only status after a calendar 
year and are no longer eligible for federal, state, or institutional financial aid. A student can 
not graduate from Ivy Tech (technical certificate or associate degree) without proof of high 
school graduation or passing GEO scores. Students who do not meet B(1 ) or B(2) should be 
referred to the appropriate College or community services (Adult Basic Education).

of the matriculation process, students may also be required to: 



As part 

1. submit financial aid forms 

2. comply with international student requirements 

3. submit other necessary program-specific data 

4. participate in initial course placement evaluation (ASSET/COMPASS) 

Applicants desiring admission to some programs may be required to meet special enrollment 
requirements including, but not limited to, satisfactory high school grades, evidence of potential 
for success in the fi eld, and/or an enrollment interview. Once a program selection is made, cer- 
tain prerequisites, including, but not limited to, health examinations, drug testing, and criminal 
background checks, may have to be met prior to enrollment in the particular program or course 

SECONDARY INITIATIVES 
Dual Credit 

Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana offers opportunities for high school juniors and seniors to 
enroll in dual credit programs that allow them to receive high school credit and advanced stand- 
ing college credit at the same time. Each Ivy Tech campus has secured agreements with area high 
schools to offer dual credit in a variety of courses. Students should contact their school adminis- 
tration to learn what dual credit courses exist at their own high schools. Requirements to partici- 
pate include admissions, readiness requirements for the course and course prerequisites. In order 
for a student to receive college credit, a grade of "B" or higher is required. 

TRANSFERRING CREDIT TO THE COLLEGE 

The College encourages students who have previously attended other accredited colleges and 
universities or adult education programs to forward transcripts to Ivy Tech prior to enrollment or 
re-enrollment for consideration of transfer of credit and/or advanced placement. Only courses 
with grades of C or higher are eligible for review for credit transfer. Students are responsible for 
providing pertinent course descriptions and/or copies of the college catalog(s) if further docu- 
mentation is needed to facilitate the review. The College will assist individuals with evaluation of 
prior educational experiences. 



ADMISSION PROCEDURES AND SUPPORT DOCUMENTS • INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS 
International students must meet College admission standards and certain other requirements. 
International students should apply for admission to Ivy Tech at least 90 days prior to the begin- 
ning of the term they wish to attend. International students must provide a foreign transcript 
equivalency evaluation from an approved evaluator indicating that the student has attained the 
equivalent of a US high school graduation. The following are approved College evaluation agen- 
cies: World Education Services, Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc, and AACRAO - Foreign 
Educational Credential Service. The type of evaluation report required by Ivy Tech is the general 
report. Students whose first language is not English must also demonstrate English language 
proficiency. The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a minimum score of 550 for 
the written exam or 213 for the computerized version is required and results must be sent direct- 
ly from Educational Testing Services (ETS) to the College. Scores will be considered if they are less 
than two years old. A language proficiency test may be waived if an applicant is from an English- 
speaking country, has completed secondary school in the US with passing grades in non-ESOL 
English courses, or is a college transfer student who has completed standard freshman English, 
with a grade of C or higher, from a regionally accredited institution. 

International students must provide proof of adequate financial support for College fees and liv- 
ing expenses for each year while attending Ivy Tech. International students should submit a letter 
from an appropriate sponsor, government official or bank official stating that sufficient funds are 
available to cover the cost of the student's education and that these funds will be available to the 
student while attending college in the United States. International students must purchase the 
College's insurance coverage for medical, accident and repatriation expenses, unless they obtain a 
waiver. Degree-seeking students must also participate in initial course placement evaluation. 

STUDENT ORIENTATION 

All new degree students are encouraged to participate in a student success seminar/orientation 
program prior to or during the first week of classes. Orientation is designed to assist students in 
making the transition to a college environment. Topic include registration procedures, career and 
employment services, financial aid, business office services, instructional programs, tutoring serv- 
ices, college activities, and policies and procedures. 

ADVANCED PLACEMENT CREDIT AND CREDIT FOR PRIOR LEARNING 

Credit by the College is granted for acceptable test results under the following programs: 

College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), Advanced Placement (AP), DANTES, and tests given 
by Ivy Tech instructors as specific subject test-outs. Transfer credit is awarded for appropriate 
grades from courses taken at other regionally accredited institutions of higher learning. 

Advanced standing is given to students who have met the requirements for regionally deter- 
mined dual and articulated secondary and post-secondary courses. 

Credit is also awarded for properly documented prior learning experiences and workforce certifi- 
cations. Ivy Tech acknowledges the prior learning experiences of students by awarding credit for 
appropriate prior learning. Such prior experience could include but is not limited to the foUowing: 
workplace learning, military experiences and training, nationally recognized testing, certifica- 
tions, and community service. The awarding of credit for prior learning experiences is limited to 



technical coursework. General education competencies must be validated through nationally rec- 
ognized testing. If program accreditation or licensure issues in certain programs preclude the 
awarding of PLA credit, the College will not award PLA credit for coursework in that program. If 
you believe you have prior learning experiences that might help you earn credit in your degree 
program, please contact the PLA Coordinator at the campus in which you are enrolled. 

The following time limits exist for the application of credit to Ivy Tech: 

CLEP and DANTES - five years after date of test 
AP - one year after high school graduation 
Transfer credit - ten years after course was taken 



Registration 



REGISTERING FOR COURSES 

The registration process includes financial aid and program advising, selection of courses and 
payment of fees. Newly admitted students will be notified when to register for their first classes. 
Specific days are set aside for registration before the beginning of each semester. Students should 
seek assistance in course selection from faculty advisors or advisors in the Office of Student 
Affairs before registering for classes. The Office of Student Affairs can supply information concern- 
ing registration. 

Note: Students are registered when fees have been paid or payment arrangements have been made. 

OPEN/LATE REGISTRATION 

Open registration is held before the beginning of the term. Registration after the first day of 
classes each term is considered late. After the first week of classes a student may register only 
with the permission of the instructor (only for a 16-week semester). For further information con- 
tart the Office of Student Affairs. 

COURSE DROP AND ADD 

Students may drop a course with no record on the transcript, or may add a course in the first 
week of the regular (16-week) semester. Courses are not officially dropped until the necessary 
forms have been completed and returned to the Office of Student Affairs. After the first week of 
the regular semester, students must receive the permission of the instructor to add a course. All 
students who are not in a paid, arranged to pay or a "z" code status will be dropped from classes 
according to a set schedule. Once dropped, students may not attend class or be graded. If a stu- 
dent has not paid or is not current with the payment schedule by the last date for withdrawal, 
the student shall be withdrawn from the class, and the tuition balance is still due and payable. 

STUDENT WITHDRAWAL 

From the beginning of the second week to the end of the week marking the completion of 75 per- 
cent of the course, a student may withdraw from a course by filing a change of enrollment form at 
the Registrar's Office. Records of students withdrawing from courses indicate a "W" status rather 
than a grade when the withdrawal process is completed. Withdrawal is complete when the neces- 
sary forms have been submitted to the Office of the Registrar. A student who ceases to attend class 
after the last day to withdraw will receive a grade commensurate with course requirements. 



Note: Withdrawing from class may affect or cancel financial assistance. Students receiving financial 
assistance should check with the Financial Aid office before withdrawal from a course or courses. 



College Fees 



The College seeks to provide quality education at the lowest possible cost. General fees are based 
on the number of credit hours for which the student has registered. Out-of-state students pay an 
additional fee per credit hour. Students or their families may be eligible for federal tuition tax 
credits in accordance with the Taxpayer Relief Art of 1997. 

2007-2008 Fees 

Tuition, per credit hour, in-state $ 91.30

Students choosing to drop a course or courses must notify the College in writing using the change 
of enrollment form. Students choosing to withdraw from all courses may begin the withdrawal 
process in writing.The fee refund for voluntary withdrawal from a class, when applicable, will be 
processed only after the student files a change of enrollment form with the Registrar's Office. 



The Student Information System processes student refunds using the percentages noted below. 
Refunds are calculated on business days regardless of holidays.Technology fees, consumable fees, 
and tuition are refunded at the same rate noted below. With regard to the technology fee, if the 
student withdraws from all of his/her classes during the 100 percent refund period, the technolo- 
gy fee will be refunded. If the student is enrolled in any classes beyond the 100 percent refund 
period, the technology fee will not be refunded. For purposes of the refund period, the "first day" 
is calculated differently for terms of 1 2 weeks or more and for terms of less than 1 2 weeks. For 
terms of 1 2 weeks or more, the refund period would begin on Monday of the first week of classes 
that a particular course meets. For terms of less than 1 2 weeks, the refund period would begin on 
the first day the course meets. For terms of less than \2 weeks, if a class begins on a Saturday or 
Sunday, the refund period would begin on the following Monday.

Financial Aid 

Ivy Tech participates in various types of federal and state financial aid programs that provide 
assistance to many students. Ivy Tech also provides financial assistance to students from its own 
resources. Students are encouraged to carefully explore all financial aid options at their campus. 

Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for 
any form of financial aid.This form is available online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. Financial aid is 
available for both full- and part-time students regardless of age, race or sex. To qualify for finan- 
cial aid all applicable requirements must be met. For federal and state financial aid programs stu- 
dents must: 

• Be a regular student enrolled or accepted for enrollment in an eligible program; 

• Not be enrolled in secondary school; 

• Be a U.S. citizen or national or permanent resident; 

• Maintain satisfactory academic progress in a course of study; 

• Not owe a refund to a federal grant or loan program. 

Students who have completed the FAFSA and submitted all required documentation will receive 
an award letter detailing the financial aid programs offered. Students will be notified of any addi- 
tional documentation required for an award or instructions for receiving payment. Detailed infor- 
mation on all financial aid programs is available online at www.ivytech.edu or at your campus 
financial aid office 

The following are financial aid programs: 
Federal Pell Grants 



Academic Competitiveness Grant 

Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grants 

Federal Work Study 

Federal Stafford Loans 

Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students 

Frank O'Bannon Awards 

Child of Disabled Veteran Awards 

Veteran's Benefits 

Indiana National Guard Supplemental Grants 

21st Century Scholar Awards 

Ivy Tech Foundation Scholarships 

For priority consideration for state assistance (SSACI), the FAFSA must be received by the Federal 
processor after January 1 but on or before March 1 preceding enrollment for the following fall 
semester. Otherwise, students may apply anytime during the school year. However, students are 
encouraged to apply at least 4 weeks prior to the enrollment for the term they wish to attend. 

Application Procedures for Financial Aid 

Students may apply on-line at www.fafsa.ed.gov or application forms are available in the 
Financial Aid Office at all Ivy Tech campuses. Because application procedures, deadlines, eligibility 
regulations and refund policies vary with different types of student aid programs, interested stu- 
dents are encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office at their earliest opportunity. Students 
should allow two weeks for electronic applications or six to eight weeks for processing paper 
financial aid applications. Students are encouraged to apply for assistance at anytime In general 
the fall semester marks the beginning of the financial aid award year. 

Student Records 

Ivy Tech maintains an educational record for each student who is or has been enrolled at hry 
Tech. In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, the 
following student rights are covered by the act and afforded to all students at Ivy Tech: 

1 . The right to inspect and review information contained in the student's educational records. 

2. The right to challenge the contents of the student's educational records. 

3. The rightto a hearing if the outcome of the challenge is unsatisfactory. 

4. The right to submit an explanatory statement for indusion in the educational record if the 
outcome of the hearing is unsatisfactory. 

5. The right to prevent disclosure, with certain exceptions, of personally identifiable information. 

6. The right to secure a copy of the institutional policy. 

7. The right to file complaints with the Department of Education concerning alleged failures 
by Ivy Tech to comply with the provisions of the act. The name and address of the office that 
administers FERPA is: 



Family Policy Compliance Office 
U.S. Department of Education 
400 Maryland Avenue, SW 
Washington, DC 20202-4605 

Each of these rights, with any limitations or exceptions, is explained in the Student Affairs Policy 
and Procedures Manual, a copy of which may be obtained in the Office of Student Affairs or the 
library. 

At the College's discretion directory information may be provided in accordance with the provi- 
sions of the act without the written consent of the student unless the student reguests in writing 
that such information not be disclosed (see below). The items listed below are designated as 
directory information and may be released for any purpose at the discretion of Ivy Tech unless a 
reguest for non-disclosure is on file. 

1 . Name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, dates of attendance, enrollment status 

2. Previous institution(s) attended, major field of study, awards, honors, degree conferred. 

3. Past and present participation in officially recognized activities, date and place of birth. 

Students may reguest the withholding of directory information by notifying the Registrar's Office 
in writing, specifying the categories to be withheld, within ten (10) calendar days from the first 
scheduled day of the term. Ivy Tech will honor the reguest for one term only. Therefore the stu- 
dent must file the reguest on a term basis. The student should carefully consider the conse- 
guences of any decision to withhold any category of directory information. Regardless of the 
effect upon the student Ivy Tech assumes no liability for honoring a student's reguest that such 
information be withheld. Failure on the part of a student to reguest the withholding of specific 
categories of directory information indicates the student's approval of disclosure. 

In addition, student records are held in security by the College.Transcripts on file with the 
College from high schools and other institutions of higher education cannot be released by Ivy 
Tech. A student needing a transcript from high school or another college should request it 
directly from that institution. The Registrar's Office will assist students wishing to see and 
review their academic records and student files. Any questions concerning the student's rights 
and responsibilities under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act should be referred to 
the Office of the Registrar. 

DEPENDENCY PROVISION 

Ivy Tech reserves the right, as allowed under the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 
1 974, to disclose educational records or components thereof without written consent to parents 
of dependent students as defined according to the Internal Revenue Code of 1 954, Section 1 52 
(as amended). A certified copy of the parent's most recent federal income tax form establishing 
the student's dependency status shall be required before any educational records or components 
thereof will be released to the parent of any student. 



Academic Grading 



The academic grading system has both grades and status codes, both of which are explained in 
greater detail later in this section. Grades reflect the quality of performance and level of compe- 



tency achieved by students who complete a course. Formal grades are assigned at the end of 
each enrollment period. Instructors determine and assign grades and status based on objective 
appraisal and evaluation of the student's performance. Semester grade reports are available on 
the web and by phone. 

In all courses the quality of the student's work determines the grade earned. For some courses 
quantity of work, speed of work, or both also are considered in determining the grade. Class par- 
ticipation also may be considered by instructors in awarding grades. In certain instances a status 
code appears on the student's record in place of a grade. Status represents a condition to which 
no letter grade can be assigned. 

GRADES 

The quality of student performance or competency level, as determined by the instructor at the 
completion of a course, is indicated by a letter grade of A, B, C, D or F. Ivy Tech does not use pluses 
and minuses as a part of its grading system. Each designation has a numerical value per credit 
hour, referred to as"guality points."The meaning and quality point value per credit hour of each 
letter grade are shown in the table below: 



STATUS

A 


Excellent 


4 


B

3 


C 


Average 


2 


D 


Below Average 


1 


F 


Failure 






Academic skills advancement courses are assigned grading designations, but no quality points or 
quality hours are earned. 

STATUS CODES 

Status codes describe the state or condition of a course on the student's record for which a grade 
has not been awarded. Status code indications carry no quality points.The types of status codes 
and the symbols used to indicate them are shown below: 



STATUS 




I Incomplete 


AU 


Audit 


S 


Satisfactory 


U 


Unsatisfactory 


V 


Verified Competency 


W 


Withdrawal 



These status codes are used for the following reasons: 

I — Incomplete 

"I" designations are received by students who have actively pursued a course and are doing pass- 



ing work at the end of the course but who have not completed the final examination and/or 
other specific course assignments. 

To remove an "I" designation, a student must meet with the instructor and make arrangements to 
complete course requirements in a specified period not to exceed 30 days beyond the star of the 
following term. The instructor must submit the grade within 31 calendar days of the beginning of 
the following term in which the student received the'T' designation. 

AU— Audit 

"AU" status indicates enrollment in a course for which no grade or credit is awarded. The fees 
for audited courses are the same as those for courses taken for credit. Audit status must be 
declared no later than the end of the first week of classes with approval of the instructor or 
program chairperson. 

W— Withdrawal 

A "W" status code will be used for student and academic withdrawals. Student withdrawal ( W) 
is a status referring to voluntary student withdrawal beginning at the start of the third week of 
the course for a 1 6-week semester up to the end of the week marking the completion of 75 per- 
cent of the course.To be considered officially withdrawn from a course the student must file 
change of enrollment form with the Office of the Registrar. After 75 percent of the term has 
elapsed a student may withdraw (with the same result as indicated above) only if documented 
extenuating circumstances are submitted to and approved by the Chief Academic Officer or 
his/her designee. 

S — Satisfactory 

The "S" indicates satisfactory completion of course work in situations where either a status of 
satisfactory or unsatisfactory (pass/fail) has been arranged by prior agreement. Requests for this 
type of grading must be declared at time of registration. Courses graded with an "S" do not count 
toward graduation requirements. 

U — Unsatisfactory 

The "U" indicates unsatisfactory completion of course work in situations where either a status of 
satisfactory or unsatisfactory (pass/fail) has been arranged by prior agreement. Requests for this 
type of grading must be declared at time of registration.The"U" differs from anT'in that quality 
points are not computed. 

V — Verified Competency 

The "V" indicates satisfactory completion of course work in situations such as test-out, credit for 
prior learning experience or training, College Level Examination Program (CLEP), etc. Credit 
gained through this method may be used to satisfy degree requirements.This status is approved 
by the Chief Academic Officer upon recommendation of a faculty advisor following completion of 
necessary verification and documentation of competency. 

CREDIT HOURS 

Credit is described in semester hours (the number of credits taken per semester). The number 
of credits is determined by the demands of the course, course work and by the number of contact 
hours - the hours actually spent in the classroom or laboratory. 



CREDIT HOURS/LOAD 

A credit hour represents one hour of lecture, two hours of laboratory, three hours of clinical/ 
practicum/studio, or five hours of internship instruction per week for the semester. A three-oed- 
it-hour lecture course, for example, meets 48 hours during a 16-week semester (3 hours/week i 
16 weeks). An average full-time semester class load in most Ivy Tech programs consists of 12-15 
credit hours. A class load of more than 17 credit hours requires approval of the Chief Academic 
Officer or designee. 

ENROLLMENT STATUS 

Enrollment status for the fall and spring semesters is determined by registered total semester 
credits: 



Full-time student 


1 2 or more credits per semester 


3/4 time 


9-11 credits per semester 


1/2 time 


6-8 credits per semester 


Less than 1/2 time 


1-5 credits per semester 



A first-year student, by definition, is one who has completed 30 or fewer semester credit hours. 
A second-year student is one who has completed 31 or more semester credit hours. 

For the summer period, enrollment status for Title IV financial aid and for all other purposes is as 
follows: 





FINANCIAL AID 


ALL OTHER PURPOSES 


Full-time 


12 credits 


6 credits 


3/4 time 


9-11 credits 


4-5 credits 


1/2 time 


6-8 credits 


3 credits 


Less than 1/2 time 


1-5 credits 


1-2 credits 



QUALITY POINTS 

Quality points are numerical values indicating the quality of student performance in credit 
courses: A=4; B=3; C=2; D=1; F=0.The quality points earned for a course equal the quality 
point value times the number of credits. A student who earns an "A" in a four-credit course 
earns 16 quality points: the quality point value (4) xthe number of credits (4) = the total 
quality points (16). 

GRADE POINT AVERAGES 

The grade point average (GPA) is a numerical indication of the student's performance in all cours- 
es in which quality points can be earned. The GPA is calculated by dividing the number of quality 
points earned by the number of credits earned. The term and cumulative GPA, calculated to three 
decimal places, will appear on the online grade report as well as on the transcript 

Under extenuating circumstances a student may petition the Chief Academic Officer to exclude 
coursework from the cumulative GPA calculation. Courses excluded from the cumulative GPA cal- 
culation as a result of a petition will not be counted as earned and cannot be used to satisfy pro- 



gram requirements for degree-seeking students. Grades for excluded courses will remain in the 
student's term GPA, and the courses will continue to appear on the transcript, however the cumu- 
lative GPA will reflect the exclusion of the coursework. Contact the Office of Student Affairs for 
additional information. 

IMPROVING A GRADE 

Students may attempt to improve grades by repeating courses (allowable once per course). 
Financial aid recipients, however, should review their situations carefully since payment for 
repeated courses can be disallowed. Student transcripts will contain a complete record of all 
activity.The student's grade point average will reflect the highest grade earned. 

DEAN'S LIST 

The Dean's List, prepared and published each term, gives recognition to degree-seeking students 
who achieve a minimum 3.50 grade point average in non-academic skills advancement courses 
with no Ds or Fs while earning six or more Ivy Tech credits during the semester and have earned 
at least a total of 1 2 non-academic skills advancement credits during their course of study. 

GRADE REPORTS 

Grade reports are available on the web via Web for Students and by phone via STARS. A student 
may also request a copy of the academic transcript from the Office of the Registrar, which lists all 
coursework attempted at Ivy Tech. 

PRIOR COURSEWORK 

Credits taken more than ten years prior must be reviewed by the Dean of Academic Affairs to be 
applied to a degree or certificate objective.This policy applies to credits accepted in transfer from 
another institution and to credits taken at Ivy Tech prior to declaring the new degree or certifi- 
cate objective to which the credits may apply. 

ATTENDANCE 

Regular attendance is expected at scheduled class meetings or other activities assigned as part of 
a course of instruction. Attendance records are kept by instructors. When personal circumstances 
make it impossible to attend scheduled classes and activities, the College experts students to 
confer with instructors in advance. Instructors can offer students the option of making up the 
material missed. 

Absences may be considered by instructors in awarding grades and considering involuntary with- 
drawal. Students who must interrupt their Ivy Tech education to fulfill Reserve and National 
Guard annual tour requirements should present official military orders to their instructors prior to 
departure for duty. Students are not excused from completion of the course work and should 
make arrangements with their instructors to complete all work 



Standards of Progress 



Students who have declared a certificate or degree objective and who have 15 or more cumula- 
tive quality credit hours attempted must maintain a 2.00 minimum cumulative grade point aver- 
age (GPA) to remain in satisfactory academic standing. Students receiving financial aid must 



demonstrate satisfactory progress toward completion of a program within a specified time frame 
based on their enrollment status. Students also must successfully complete the minimum num- 
ber of credit hours required for that status each semester. All students are expected to maintain a 
minimum of a 2.00 cumulative GPA to be eligible for graduation. Questions about standards of 
progress and academic standing should be addressed to the Office of Student Affairs. 

SPECIAL PROBLEMS 

The Office of Student Affairs is available to help with special problems, exceptional circumstances, 
and filing grievances (see Student Grievances). Special problems, exceptional circumstances, and 
grievances are ultimately the responsibility of the Chief Administrative Officer of the region, des- 
ignated staff and committees. 

Assessment 

Assessment and evaluation at Ivy Tech lie at the heart of College teaching and learning as well as 
academic and student support systems. Assessment is a tool that supports the College mission to 
prepare individuals for employment and higher education. It is also a critical component of the 
College Plan for Institutional Improvement. A college-wide assessment and evaluation plan has 
been developed to measure student academic success. Because academic skills are one of the 
best measures of program success, the format of the plan reflects assessment and evaluation as 
students move through courses and programs. 

The Assessment and Evaluation Plan is a reflection of the College's commitment to enhanced stu- 
dent learning from initial evaluation for course placement through outcomes assessment and 
subsequent institutional improvement that occurs as a result of these activities.The Assessment 
and Evaluation Plan follows students' experiences from entry-level placement through courses 
and degree or certificate programs.The plan also examines student-learning outcomes during 
course enrollments. In addition, it measures students' technical and general education skills near 
and/or after graduation. 

Graduation 

The Associate of Arts, Associate of Fine Arts, Associate of Science, Associate of Applied Science 
degrees, Technical Certificates and Certificates are awarded by the College to students who meet 
graduation requirements. Graduating students may be charged a fee to cover the cost of the cer- 
emonial cap and gown. A student is considered eligible for graduation when requirements for 
graduation have been fulfilled. Each student entering the final semester prior to graduation must 
complete an application for graduation. The application will be certified by the student's program 
advisor and forwarded to the Registrar's Office where the appropriate diploma will be prepared. 
Graduating students will participate in outcomes assessments.To graduate with an Associate of 
Arts degree, an Associate of Fine Arts degree, an Associate of Science degree, an Associate of 
Applied Science degree, a Technical Certificate, or a Certificate, the student must: 

1 . Attain a minimum grade point average of 2.00 in the required technical and general 
education courses; 



2. Completion of at least 1 5 degree credits in the curriculum as a regular student of Ivy Tech, 
and not through test-out or other means of advanced placement; 

3. Successfully complete the required number of credits; 

4. Satisfy all financial obligations due the College;and 

5. Satisfy program accreditation standards that may have additional requirements. 

Transferring to Another Institution 

Ivy Tech has articulation agreements under which students may transfer individual courses or entire 
programs of study to a number of public and private institutions. A student, depending on his or her 
goals, may choose to transfer to another college or university and pursue a bachelor's degree after 
completion of a series of courses or completion of a two-year degree program at Ivy Tech. Some of 
these agreements are collegewide and some pertain to specific campuses of Ivy Tech. 

The selection of an institution for transfer should be an individual decision based upon the extent 
to which credits will transfer, compatibility of degree programs, location, availability of program- 
ming, philosophy, and cost of attending the transfer school. Opportunities are available to Ivy 
Tech students to transfer and complete a baccalaureate program as a resident or commuting stu- 
dent. In addition opportunities are available to pursue a bachelor's degree using distance tech- 
nologies which will allow a student to complete a degree program within the home community, 
even at an Ivy Tech campus. 

Students are encouraged to review transfer options with their advisors, to consult the current cat- 
alog of the institution to which they wish to transfer, and to contact the institution to which they 
wish to transfer. Information about statewide program transfer is included with many programs 
in this catalog. Additional opportunities for course and program transfer with both public and 
independent colleges and universities are available. Students should contact the transfer office of 
their local Ivy Tech for further information. 

TransferIN 

Courses marked with "TransferIN" after the title are part of the Indiana Core Transfer Library. 
Indiana is working to help you transfer college credits more easily. To enable students to connect 
college credits, Indiana has developed the Core Transfer Library (CTL) - a list of courses that will 
transfer among all Indiana public college and university campuses, assuming adequate grades. 
Core Transfer Library courses will meet the general or free elective requirements of undergradu- 
ate degree programs and most CTL courses will also count towards degree program require- 
ments, if an equivalent course is taught at your new campus. For more information about the 
Core Transfer Library, and for the most up-to-date course list, go to www.transferlN.net.

Student Rights and Responsibilities 

STUDENT CONDUCT 

The College is committed to academic integrity in all its prartices.The faculty value intellectual 
integrity and a high standard of academic conduct. Activities that violate academic integrity 
undermine the quality and diminish the value of educational achievement. 



The reputation of the College and the community depends in large part upon the behavior of its 
students. Students enrolled at the College are expected to conduct themselves in a mature, digni- 
fied and honorable manner. Students are entitled to a learning atmosphere free from discrimina- 
tion, harassment, sexual harassment and intimidation. This applies to the conduct between facul- 
ty and staff to students, student to student, and students to faculty and staff. 

Students are subject to College jurisdiction while enrolled at the College.The College reserves 
the right to take disciplinary action against any student whose conduct, in the opinion of College 
representatives, is not in the best interests of the student, other students, or the College. Students 
who are disciplined should expert to find their sanctions enforced at other Ivy Tech campuses. 

All students are expected to abide by the following College rules of conduct. 

"Student" as used refers to a student, a group of students, a prospective student or a group of 
prospective students. 

COLLEGE RULES 

1. Academic Integrity 

Faculty are responsible for maintaining the academic integrity of the institution. Academic 
integrity is expected of all students and faculty. 

Ivy Tech recognizes academic integrity as a fundamental principle of collegial life. The credi- 
bility of the College's educational programs rests upon the foundation of student learning 
and integrity. Students who misrepresent their academic work violate the rights of their fel- 
low students and undermine the faculty's authority and their ability to assess learning.The 
College therefore views any art of academic dishonesty as a serious offense requiring disci- 
plinary measures, including failure for the exam or specific course work, course failure, sus- 
pension, and expulsion from the College. In addition, an art of academic dishonesty my have 
unforeseen effects and lead to formal processes outside the College. 

Definitions: Violations of academic integrity include, but are not limited to, the following acts: 

Cheating: Unauthorized use of notes or study aids, or acquiring information from another 
student's papers, on an examination; or obtaining a copy of an examination or questions 
from an exam prior to taking the exam; or altering graded work with the intent to deceive 
by resubmitting it for re-evaluation; or altering or destroying grade records; or allowing 
another person to do one's work and then submitting as one's own name; or allowing 
another to take an examination in one's name; or submitting identical or similar papers for 
credit in more than one course without obtaining prior permission from the instructors of all 
the courses involved. 

Aiding Cheating or Other Acts of Academic Dishonesty: Providing material or information to 
another student with the knowledge that this material or information will be used to 
deceive faculty in an effort to acquire higher grades. 

Plagiarism: Presenting within one's own work the ideas, representations, or words of anoth- 
er person without customary and proper acknowledgment of that person's authorship is 
considered plagiarism. Students who are unsure of what constitutes plagiarism should con- 



suit with their instructors. Claims of ignorance will not necessarily excuse the offense. 

Data Misrepresentation: Fabricating data; deliberately presenting in an assignment data that 
were not gathered in accordance with assigned guidelines or are deliberately fabricated; or 
providing an inaccurate account of the method by which the data were gathered or generated. 

Falsification of Academic Records or Documents: Falsification of academic records or docu- 
ments includes but is not limited to altering any documents affecting academic records; 
forging signatures; or falsifying information of an official academic document such as a 
grade report, ID card, library card, or any other official College letter or communication will 
constitute academic dishonesty. 

Unauthorized Access to Computerized Academic or Administrative Records or Systems: 
Unauthorized access to computerized academic or administrative records or systems means 
viewing or altering the College's computer records without authorization; copying or modify- 
ing the College's computer programs or systems without authorization; releasing or dispens- 
ing information gained through unauthorized access; or interfering with the use or availabil- 
ity of computer systems or information. Also, when college-sponsored activities are held at 
locations owned or managed by other institutions or organizations, the unauthorized use, 
viewing, copying, or altering of those institutions' computer records, systems, or program 
would similarly constitute a violation of academic integrity. 

2. Assembly: College policy states that assembly in a manner that obstructs the free movement 
of others about the campus, inhibits the free and normal use of the College buildings and 
facilities, or prevents or obstructs the normal operation of the College is not permitted. 
Obstruction of the free flow of pedestrian or vehicular traffic on College premises or at

REPEATED OFFENSES OF A LESS SERIOUS NATURE 

Repeated offenses of a less serious nature are considered disruptive and will be handled under 
the College's disciplinary process. 

POLICY AND COMPLAINT PROCEDURE AGAINST HARASSMENT 

The College will not tolerate harassment based on gender (with or without sexual conduct), sex- 
ual orientation, race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, and/or opposition to prohibited 
discrimination or participation in this or any other complaint procedure.This prohibition covers 



harassment against any student at an Ivy Tech campus by anyone, including other students, 
employees or non-employees during any College activity or program. The policy prohibiting 
harassment includes adverse treatment of students because they report harassment or provide 
information related to such complaints. 

Sexual harassment is simply one form of harassment covered by this policy. Sexual harassment 
encompasses unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical 
conduct of a sexual nature where: 

Submission to the conduct is an explicit or implicit term of student status (which includes aca- 
demic and non-academic decisions). 

Submission or rejection of the conduct is the basis for any decision affecting that individual's stu- 
dent status; or such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individ- 
ual's academic performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive academic environment. 

Sexual harassment would include, but not be limited to, actions such as: 

(1) sex-oriented oral or written "kidding" or abuse, (2) photographs, drawings or graffiti of a sexu- 
al nature, (3) subtle pressure for sexual activity, (4) physical conduct such as patting, pinching, or 
constant brushing against another's body, and (5) explicit demands for sexual favors, whether or 
not accompanied by implied or overt promises of preferential treatment or threats concerning 
an individual's student status. 

REPORTING AND COMPLAINT PROCEDURE 

Students are encouraged to report harassment before it becomes severe or pervasive. A student 
who thinks that he or she has been a victim of harassment and who desires to file a complaint to 
that effect should report a complaint as follows: 

If the complaint is regarding harassment by another student it may be filed with or reported 
to the Dean of Student Affairs or an academic chairperson with the expectation that the 
harassing behavior will be a violation of the College's Code of Student Conduct, either on its 
own terms or as a violation of another College policy. 

If the complaint is regarding harassment by a College employee or non-employee it may be fi 
led with or reported to the Dean of Student Affairs, any of the employee's supervisors, or with 
the Director of Human Resources or anyone else in a managerial role. All supervisors and mem- 
bers of management to whom a complaint of harassment is brought or who independently 
observe behavior prohibited by the harassment policy are to report the complaint of harass- 
ment or information about harassment promptly to the highest ranking official at the respec- 
tive facility who is not the alleged harasser, to the Dean of Student Affairs or to the Director of 
Human Resources. 

INVESTIGATION 

Students filing complaints of harassment are assured that information about the allegation 
of harassment will be shared only with those who need to know about it. Records relating to 
harassment complaints will be kept confidential on the same basis. Complete confidentiality can- 
not be guaranteed since conducting an effective investigation would not be possible without 
revealing certain information to the alleged harasser and potential witnesses. Under no circum- 



stances will the individual who conducts the investigation or who has any direct or indirect con- 
trol over the investigation be subject to the supervisory authority of the alleged harasser. 

DETERMINATION 

After all of the evidence is in, interviews are final, and any credibility issues are resolved, a deter- 
mination as to whether harassment occurred will be made and the parties infofmed of the 
determination. If no determination can be made because the evidence is incondusive the parties 
will be informed of this result. 

CORRECTIVE ACTION 

After the determination is made the College will undertake prompt and appropriate corrective 
action including discipline up to and including termination of employment of an employee 
harasser or dismissal of a student harasser, whenever ft determines that harassment has occurred 
in violation of this policy. Such corrective action will be reported to the student making the com- 
plaint. 

VIOLATIONS 

The College strives to provide an educational and professional environment that allows individu- 
als to engage in their daily activities in a safe, healthy and secure manner. Local, state or federal 
law enforcement officials will be notified of anyone violating local, state or federal laws. Violators 
shall be subject to prosecution by the appropriate law enforcement officials. 

Anyone found in violation of College regulations shall be subject to disciplinary action by the 
College through due process procedures for student conduct violations. 

The regulations and procedures will be placed for reading and review in the library. Copies wi 
also be available through the Office of Admissions or Student Affairs. 

DISCIPLINARY ACTION 

Cases of student misconduct and/or lack of academic integrity are to be referred to the chief aca- 
demic officer or chief student affairs officer. A student who violates the rules and regulations of 
the College may be subject to disciplinary actions, which may indude, but not be limited to, the 

following: 

1. Verbal reprimand; 

2. Restitution for damages; 

3. Restriction of privileges such as access to lab fadlities, library fadlfties, testing center, etc; 

4. Failure of the exam, quiz, project, etc. 

5. Failure of the assignment or course; 

6. Withdrawal from a course, program or the College for the remainder of the semester or term; 

7. Suspension from the College (one calendar year); 

8. Dismissal from the College (five years; student may appeal for reinstatement). 

In addition, the College representative will be responsible to review all initial disciplinary proce- 
dures and may suspend a student for a period of time until the Student Status Committee can 
meet. 



Students are provided an opportunity to appeal any disciplinary decision and are required to 
sign a waiver if they choose to waive the right to appeal. The basic process in discipline cases is 
as follows: notice of charges, notice of possible penalty, and opportunity to explain a defense to 
some authority. 

1 . An appropriate College official shall notify the student that he or she is accused of violating 
a regulation. 

2. The student shall be notified in writing that he or she may elect one of three courses of action: 

A. The student may admit the alleged violation and agree with the recommended discipli 
nary action. A signed waiver which waives the right to appeal is required. 

B. The student may admit the alleged violation and request a hearing before the Student 
Status Committee. 

C. The student may deny the alleged violation, in which case the administrative officer shall 
refer him/her to the Student Status Committee. 

The Student Status Committee hears all appeals relating to disciplinary actions. 

STUDENT GRIEVANCE POLICY 

The student grievance process provides the College an appropriate mechanism to deal with viola- 
tions of student rules of conduct and conversely allows a student with a disagreement to grieve 
against a College employee's decision affecting that student.The College encourages students to 
resolve their complaints informally. The informal grievance procedures are designed to accom- 
plish a quick resolution that is most expeditious and effective. 

Whenever the informal process does not result in a satisfactory resolution, the College formal 
grievance procedure is also available. 

INFORMAL GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE 

The student shall initiate the informal process with the student working one-on-one with appro- 
priate faculty or staff and must be started within 30 calendar days of the incident. Students must 
bring to the attention of their instructor (in cases involving academic coursework) or relevant 
supervisory staff member legitimate complaints perceived by them. The student should first 
bring the complaint to the attention of his/her instructor or the person with whom the student 
has a complaint. A conference with the student will be scheduled as soon as possible and within 
five working days (Monday - Friday) of notice of the student complaint, at the latest. The intent of 
these conferences is to ensure an early discussion of the issue, that the issue has been raised in a 
timely fashion and that if possible a mutually acceptable resolution can be reached. 

A student who feels that the conference would be futile because of that person's involvement or 
the situation/concern cannot be resolved with the instructor or staff with whom the student has 
the complaint, he or she should bring the grievance in writing to the supervisor of that area or 
department. The conference will be held as soon as possible and at least within five working days 
of notice of the complaint. Such conferences are to be conducted in proper sequence of supervi- 
sors. If the grievance is not resolved with an instructor the student may elect to request a confer- 
ence with a department head, division chair or the chief academic officer, as deemed appropriate. 
Non-instructional areas follow the same step process. Through Student Affairs, for example, the 



process would be advisors/counselors, then manager, and finally the chief student affairs officer. 
Grievances may cover matters such as the application of College policies and practices to the 
grievant but the existence or content of the policies may not be grieved. 

FORMAL GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE 

If a student is not satisfied with the results of the informal process the student may proceed with 
the formal grievance as described below. 

FORMAT OF THE WRITTEN GRIEVANCE 

If the complaint is not resolved to the student's satisfaction through the informal procedure the 

student shall put the grievance to writing.The formal complaint must: 

1. Clearly state the facts giving rise to the grievance. 

2. Describe the efforts to informally resolve the complaint. 

3. State the remedy sought by the grievant. 

4. Be signed and dated. 

TIMELY FILING OF A FORMAL GRIEVANCE 

Students must file complaints within a reasonable period of time, not to exceed 30 calendar 
days, after the informal grievance process has been exhausted. Students must fi le a grievance 
within 30 days of the end of the term in which the incident occurred 

FILING THE FORMAL GRIEVANCE 

Original copies of the formal written grievance document shall be filed with both the regional 
office of Student Affairs and the College's Executive Director for Student Support Systems (50 W. 
Fall Creek Parkway N. Dr., Indianapolis, Indiana 46208).The Executive Director shall assign a College 
Grievance Coordinator who shall coordinate the handling of the grievance within the region. 

MEDIATION 

Reasonable efforts should be made by the Grievance Coordinator to mediate a mutually agree- 
able resolution of the matter with the parties. A signed document should be generated by the 
Grievance Coordinator stating the results of the mediation. 

STUDENT STATUS COMMITTEE 

The Student Status Committee is a committee whose purpose is to review all formal grievances 
referred to it and recommend a resolution to the chief administrative officer. It will be composed 
of six members, including two full-time instructional staff members and two administrative staff 
persons appointed by the chief administrative officer of the region. The additional two members 
will be students designated by the Student Government Association or the chief student affairs 
officer. The Committee's review of a formal appeal will begin no later than 30 days after fact-find- 
ing and mediation terminates.The Grievance Coordinator shall keep the grievance body informed 
of efforts related to fact-finding and mediation. Central Office support, as needed, will be avail- 
able to the Grievance Coordinator. 



DISPOSITION OF A FORMAL GRIEVANCE 
BY THE STUDENT STATUS COMMITTEE 

If mediation does not resolve the grievance the Student Status Committee shall, in all cases, con- 
duct a hearing. Unless there is a mutual resolution of the grievance the grievance shall not be dis- 
missed prior to the hearing. Written notice of the procedures, actions and meetings at all stages 
of the formal complaint procedure, including the role of advisors to each party, will be provided to 
both the student (grievant) and respondent. 

The Student Status Committee will ensure the student due process. The student has the 
following rights: 

1 . Reasonable advance written notification of the time and place of the hearing; 

2. Notification in writing of the charges with sufficient particularity to enable the student to 
prepare a defense; 

3. Notification in writing of the names of the witness (es) directly responsible for reporting 
the alleged violation or, if there are no such witness (es), written notification of how the 
alleged violation was reported; 

4. Notice of actions and meetings at all stages of this appeal procedure; 

5. An opportunity to be heard; 

6. An opportunity to question witnesses at hearings; 

7. An opportunity to have a representative present when presenting facts, being questioned, 
or asking questions; 

8. An expeditious hearing of the case; 

9. An explanation of the decision rendered in the case. 

The student shall not be required to testify against him or herself. 

Once the formal grievance has been initiated and attempts by the Grievance Coordinator to medi- 
ate a settlement have been exhausted a hearing shall be held pursuant to the hearing guidelines 
entitled "Student Grievance Hearing Procedural Guidelines."These guidelines, which are occasion- 
ally updated, describe how the actual hearing will be conducted.The Grievance Coordinator will 
provide a copy to both the student (grievant) and respondent at the beginning of the formal 
process. Persons who desire to view the guidelines should contact the chief student affairs officer 
for a copy. 

The Student Status Committee will issue a recommendation(s) to the chief administrative officer 
following its deliberation. Recommendations of the Student Status Committee if approved by the 
chief administrative officer are final, unless appealed to the Office of the President (see Appeal to 
the Office of the President). The student will be informed in writing of the chief administrative 
officer's decision. A copy of the letter with the chief administrative officer's decision will be filed 
in the student's permanent record. 

APPEAL TO THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT 

If the student does not accept the decision of the Student Status Committee the student may 
appeal, in writing, within 30 calendar days from the written notification by sending a written 



notice to the General Counsel, Collegewide Appeals Grievance Body, at 50 W. Fall Creek Parkway 

N. Dr., Indianapolis, IN 46208. 

An appeal of the decision of the Student Status Committee to the Collegewide Appeals Grievance 
Body is limited to procedural errors.The Collegewide Appeals Grievance Body does not review or 
re-hear the merits of the original grievance.The Collegewide Appeals Grievance Body can recom- 
mend to the President that the decision should stand or to remand it back to the campus chief 
administrative officer for reconsideration. The decision of the President is final. 

REINSTATEMENT TO THE COLLEGE 

If a student is dismissed from any campus/region of Ivy Tech, that individual is dismissed from 
the College. The year starts at the time/date of official notification to the student by the 
Chancellor/Executive Dean. After one calendar year the individual under suspension may apply 
for reinstatement. If the student is dismissed the student may appeal for reinstatement after five 
years. The individual must begin the reinstatement appeal process by informing the Dean of 
Student Affairs at the campus where the dismissal took place of his/her intentions.The appeal for 
reinstatement may be applied for at any campus/region of Ivy Tech where the individual hopes 
to attend. The appeal will be reviewed by the Dean of Academic Affairs and the Dean of Student 
Affairs. If there is reinstatement that is agreed to by the student, no further action is necessary. If 
the student is not satisfied with the reinstatement decision, the formal due process procedure is 
implemented.The campus/region Student Status Committee will act on the appeal within 30 
days of its receipt.The recommendation of the Student Status Committee will be forwarded to 
the Chancellor/Executive Dean of the campus/region.That individual will render a judgment on 
the appeal. That judgment will be final. 

STUDENT APPEAL OF A GRADE 

When a student believes the final grade he or she received in a course is inaccurate, he or she 
should make an appointment with the instructor who issued the grade or status and explain the 
reasons for this belief. This process must be initiated within 30 calendar days of receiving the 
grade. The instructor and the student should make every effort to resolve the issue, ft is expected 
that most if not all misunderstandings will be resolved at this level. 

If the grade or status issue is not resolved the student can appeal in writing to the instructor's 
supervisor. This individual may be the department chairperson or program chairperson. Once the 
student has appealed the grade or status with the chairperson, if the issue is not resolved to the 
student's satisfaction the student may appeal to the department chairperson, next higher chair- 
person, or whomever is next in line. 

The student's next recourse is to appeal to the regional chief academic officer. The student must 
notify the dean of academic affairs in writing of his or her intent to appeal the grade. An appeals 
committee will be formed by the academic dean, consisting of a faculty member from the pro- 
gram or from the division in which the program is housed, a faculty member from another divi- 
sion, the regional student affairs dean or designee, the regional academic affairs dean, and an 
optional fifth regional person, possibly staff. The appeals committee's decision will be forwarded 
to the student. Students not satisfied with the committee's decision may make a final appeal to 
the regional chancellor. 



STUDENT RIGHT TO KNOW 

The 1990 federal Student Right to Know Art requires colleges and universities to report to 
prospective and current students the persistence and graduation rates of full-time technical cer- 
tificate and degree-seeking students.The graduation rate is based upon program completion 
within 1 50 percent of time usually required for a full-time student. For technical certificate stu- 
dents, this is the number of full-time students graduating in three semesters. For associate 
degree students, this is the number of students graduating in six semesters. Contact the Office of 
Student Affairs for further information.

Apprenticeship Programs 

Ivy Tech is a partner with Industrial and Building Trades Apprenticeship programs in Indiana to 
provide certificates and associate degree programs to Indiana companies and employees. The 
College and the local joint apprenticeship training committees (JATQ come together and offer 
educational programs. Individuals who have been selected by the JATC become Ivy Tech students 
and have an opportunity to earn college credit while advancing through a registered apprentice- 
ship program. Because Ivy Tech has adopted the national standards of the Industrial and Building 
Trades apprenticeship programs, the apprentice has an opportunity to earn a Technical Certificate 
(TC), Associate of Applied Science (AAS), or Associate of Science (AS) degree. Students should 
contact the Apprenticeship Manager at the local Ivy Tech campus for more information. 

Those apprentices or journeypersons who wish to explore transfer opportunities after earning an 
AAS or AS degree can contact Indiana State University, Indiana University-Labor Studies, the 
National Labor College, or Sullivan University. Interested apprentices and journeypersons should 
consult the current catalog of the institution in which they are interested, and should review 
their options with an academic advisor. Additional course and transfer prospects may also be 
available.
